  1. “They lost both games, lost a tiebreaker to Bemidji, and Jim Roque lost his job. I don’t think that will happen this season.”

    I wholeheartedly agree. I don’t think Jim Roque will lose his job this time around.

  2. Plus Ferris cannot win home ice if they win and Bemidji loses because Bemidji holds the tiebreaker. Know your facts when writing and article please

    • Not that it matters now that Bemidji won but Bemidji did not hold the tie breaker. Head to head only works when they play 4 games against each other. Since they only played 2 games, the tie breaker is conference wins. Ferris had the edge. Looks like dking should know his facts before admonishing the writers. Whoops.

    • WCHA MEN’S TIE-BREAKING PROCEDURES FOR PLAYOFF SEEDING ONLY

      In regular-season competition, each WCHA team shall have an opportunity to accumulate points from each WCHA contest (i.e., a contest between teams representing two WCHA member institutions played as part of the conference schedule), receiving two points for each game won in regulation time or overtime, and one point for each game tied at the conclusion of overtime. The team accumulating the greatest number of points in regular-season WCHA contests shall be the WCHA regular-season champion.

      If two or more teams are tied for the regular-season championship, they shall be considered co-champions. Seeding for the WCHA Tournament if two or more teams have accumulated the same number of points shall be determined according to the following procedure:

      A) If two or more teams are tied, and all tied teams have played four contests against one another, then the team with the most accumulated points from these head-to-head contests will be granted the higher seed.

      B) If two or more teams are still tied (or all tied teams have not played four contests against one another), then the team with the greater number of conference wins will be granted the higher seed.

      C) If two or more teams are still tied (and A) above is not applicable due to an unbalanced home and away schedule amongst one another), then the team with the highest winning percentage in all head-to-head contests among the tied teams will be granted the higher seed.

      D) If not determined by A), or B), or C) above, the recipient of the highest seed shall be determined by comparison of the winning percentages of the tied teams, against the remaining highest ranked WCHA team successively, until the determination is accomplished, or all conference contests have been considered. In the event of multiple ties within the standings that become dependent on one another for determination, the procedure shall be applied to the highest tie first, using combined winning percentage against all teams involved in the lower tie(s) and continuing through the order if needed. If this fails to break the highest tie, the procedure shall be applied to the next highest tie (and so on if needed), using combined winning percentage against all tied teams as needed when proceeding through the standings.

      E) If not determined by A), or B), or C), or D) above, the recipient of the higher seed will be determined by a team’s “winning margin” during conference contests. “Winning margin” is equal to conference goals for minus conference goals against. In the event of multiple ties within the standings that reach this step, the procedure shall be applied first to the highest tie in the standings. If this fails to break the highest tie, the procedure shall be applied to the next highest tie (and so on if needed) until any tie is broken and all procedures are re-started.

      F) If not determined by A), or B), or C), or D), or E) above, the recipient of the higher seed shall be determined by the flip of a coin. In the event of multiple ties within the standings that reach this step, the procedure shall be applied first to the highest tie in the standings, after which all procedures are re-started.

      In the case of ties among three or more schools, the criteria above will be used in order, beginning with A), until a team (or teams) is (or are) separated from the other tied team (or teams). At that point, the procedures are re-started to break the “new” tie and determine recipient of the higher seed. In other words, when a three-way tie becomes a two-way tie, the two-way tie is treated as a “new” tie and the process re-starts with the first criterion.

  3. Every week you pick a split with MIch Tech amd their opponents and MTU keeps sweeping the weekend. Last weekend was the exception we at least Tied with MInn State on their ice. Tech easily beat Northern tonight and expect more of the same tomorrow. Lets go Tech!

      Just making a comment…

      It may be to Northern’s advantage to “lose” the game tonite; if I were a NMU fan, I would rather play BG then Bemidji. It is still all dependent on the Ferris game however.

      But just a note…
      .

  4. Bemidji just beat Minnesota state 5-2. Same results tomorrow for Mich Tech and Bemidgi and Mich Tech wins the Division. It could happen!

  5. .
    As of Saturday morning:

    MSU -vs- UAH/LSSU
    MTU -vs- UAH/LSSU
    BGSU -vs- NMU/FSU
    BSU -vs- NMU/FSU

    And in a way, to be fair to Fairbanks, I am glad that Anchorage was the team left out this year. Seemed to work out…

    I think MTU rather play UAH and NMU rather play BGSU.
    .

  6. Alabama drags this whole conference down. I dont know why my school hired Corbett. He is a horrible recruiter and coach. Its time to either stop operations or hire a real coach. A guy who knows how to build to build a program like bergeron at BGSU. Corbett is an idiot. He is embarasing
